maybe a warwick or a higher endish fender

You could get a warwick rockbass for under 1000, but a real warwick it would be a steal to find a new one under 1000. But maybe you could find a used american Fender Jazz or Pbass for under 1000, or just go for the Geddy Lee Signature Jazz, it plays quite well.
i bought a washburn XB925 for 620 dollars. they look kickass. thare are kinda rare, but there have been some on ebay. (its weird, i wated for about a year, none, but all fo a sudden, they are popping out.)

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!
